rob: chelsea manning back in prison one week after being released. according to several reports, head of court hearing, manning double down on her refusal to testify before the grand jury in the wiki leaks probe. >> facing jail again doesn't change my stance. the prosecutors are deliberately placing me in an impossible position. rob: until she testifies or turns the grand jury, the former army intelligence that was previously served 7 years in prison for leaking us secrets. president obama commuted her 35 year sentence. a federal judge will hear a request or a federal prosecutor in the jussie smollett case, a retired judge calling for a special prosecutor for kim fox, handled the actor's case. they dropped all charges against jussie smollett. a different judge will decide whether to unseal records in the case. that could get interesting. jussie smollett is accused of faking a hate crime attack in

>> i don't know if you like high taxes or crime, you can vote for him but most people aren't into that. i wish them luck. it would be better off if you go back to new york city and do your job in the little time you have left. rob: the president is not bill diblasio's only critic. >> is a good career move for him right now? know. homelessness is near record highs. can't seem to fire anybody, the buses -- what are you going to do? rob: not a lot of bill diblasio fans. he is the 23rd democrat to announce his candidacy for president. look at all this. jillian: judge andrew napolitano says bill diblasio's lack of support from his own city should be a red flag. >> only slightly exaggerating in
terms of the seriousness with which anybody outside bill diblasio's in a circle takes his run for the presidency which is none. the city is corrupt. his administration is corrupt. his administration is inevitably she doesn't have majority support among democrats in new york city. after having been the mayor for 6 years. so it is almost farcical that he is doing this. rob: bill diblasio was met with crowds of angry new yorkers including nypd unions, public housing recipients, black lives matter activists. all sides of the political spectrum going against the mayor and they made their disapproval quite clear. forget math and english. your neighborhood's crime rate could soon be calculated into your child 80 results. the exam will factor in
adversity scores for millions of students. jillian: the crime rate is one of many things being considered. aishah hasnie tells us how the numbers will be cringed. >> reporter: a big debate viewing over that called the adversity score. wall street journal reporting the score will be calculated based on a student's neighborhood, family environment, what kind of high school they go to. students won't know what their score is but the college they are applying to, they will. 150 schools by this fall. it will then be judged on a scale of 100. anything above the average means the more disadvantaged students face. why in the world is the college board doing this? david coleman is the brains behind common core and says this will level the playing field. he told the wall street journal, quote, there are a number of amazing students who may have
scored less on the sat but accomplished more. we can't ignore the disparity reflected in the sats. this on the heels of the college admission scandal surrounding lori locklin and felicity huffman. not everybody is buying this privilege admission argument. >> how do you know this rich kid, his family wasn't for their entire life and just made it after busting their humps for 20 years and then he gets penalized while a poor kid whose family was rich and get into some crime business and lost money a week ago, he gets in adversity score boost over the kid whose family just made it after a decade? >> reporter: bringing up a lot of questions over who this is going to hurt, who is it going to help. jillian: people have so much to
say about this. >> the last 24 hours your thoughts have been pouring on social media. ralph and instagram, participation trophy for everyone. nick tweeted why not illuminate tests altogether and just had everybody a college diploma? it would save a lot of time. william writing this on facebook, quote, you get into college by merit, that is it. rob: a lot of people questioning of college is the way anymore. almost a mandatory thing for a long time, you had to go to college. how much it costs, thank you so much. jillian: we will talk about this later in the hour. 12 minutes after the hour. the president tried to move forward with a border plan, didn't go well. will there ever be a compromise on immigration? two officials have their take. rob: everyone out of the water, sharks swarming the shore.

issues we are facing, doesn't address the d aca kids or the 11 million undocumented folks in the united states. it doesn't even get the president's signature plan of building the wall and having mexico pay for it. there is nothing in this plan for anybody. take it from and coulter to lindsey graham, republicans aren't for it. how is the president going to pass it when nobody -- republican or democratic party --'s for it? you know it is a bad plan when you can't get anybody on board. rob: the start of a negotiation. he wants to do a merit-based immigration plan. what do you think? >> the president and some of the republicans, the only ones concerned about getting something done and not just spewing out rhetoric but getting something done and i believe in
merit-based immigration, what is beneficial to america. we live in the united states of america. our government officials are supposed to put our country first and those are the things the people in this country care about and i want to see qualified individuals that could come and influence the country in a positive way, have priority over people showing up at the border and some of which people having false claims -- rob: nancy pelosi seems offended by merit-based immigration. what do you say? >> i'm all for a plan that would work. this plan has no details. the idea of bringing people in that can contribute to society in a positive way. >> this country is built by
immigrants and to think we don't believe in merit-based are you kidding me? this country is built on merit-based immigration. this whole notion of the president spinning that he came up with a bold plan that doesn't address anything, he can't get any republicans to support it, not because people don't want to move the country forward. he hasn't led since he has been elected. rob: our legal system is not merit-based but people who come in whoever wants to come in. how is it not true? millions of people we don't know who they are. >> the president's spouse brought her parents hearing what the president calls chain migration and he turns around and says we have to do merit-based? come on. we need to live in reality. >> let me jump into it. when you have 100,000 people bombarding a border in the month of april we are looking at 1 million people trying to come into this country. >> the president is not doing
anything about it. >> the president's plan is to secure the border, fix the infrastructure, focus on merit-based and eliminate the loopholes that millions of people are trying to take advantage of and that is appropriate and i cannot find any reason or rational person would have a problem with it and if people on the left or even republicans if you don't like what the president is doing get off your behind and come up with something effective. what have you been doing this all time? >> the president is not doing anything. rob: we have to cut it. we will see what democrats can get out of this and we will be right back. -we bought a house in a neighborhood

he wants to mismanage the entire country. as commander in chief he would be an unmitigated disaster. the police union and the mayor have butted heads for years after two police officers were killed in brooklyn, cops turned their backs on bill diblasio outside the hospital. some police officers blamed him for their deaths saying what they describe as anti-cop rhetoric partially to blame. a lot of reaction. pat says he is full of himself. he can't even fix new york city. linda saying i have 0 respect for bill diblasio. he ruined new york city and has never supported the nypd, enough said. according to a quinnipiac poll, 76% of new yorkers say diblasio running for president is a bad idea. jillian: we know you're not skipping work on monday. a lot of people will. >> i can't guarantee how productive i will be.

core releasing an education shakeup that has people talking. the sat test will include in adversity score that factors in a student's home life in the admission process. does this level the playing field or skip the scales? is this fair? here's nigel donald, thank you for your time. your initial thoughts when you heard this, this is fair? >> it is hard -- for some students there is a fair advantage in the wall street journal pointed out it does give fair chance to some students but on the other hand there are other students that could be discriminated on. >> a break down to explain why people are watching, and the adversity index, this is a score they don't see it including your
neighborhood environment like crime rates, the poverty rate and housing and family environment and education level and the high school environment under matching a free lunch rate and all those things. i get that some students are really smart, some brilliant, some are not good test takers. the sat score is not a good representation of who they are but do you think looking at those things like the neighborhood you come from and parents finances and things like that, do you think that is the right way to do it? >> not 100%. you may only have 40 seconds to make a decision. those numbers don't always qualify who that person is and i don't think adding an additional number 2 that will expand what we are looking at.
looking at who they are as an individual if they were involved or what they are doing to improve the community -- >> students don't see this themselves? >> to is agree it is unfair because it creates speculation of sending my application to a university and i can be rejected and i don't know why. jillian: what would you propose if you come up with a different idea versus looking at crime statistics, parents financial income. what would you say is fair to judge students on? >> the essay is an important thing. an admissions counselor comes down to tough decisions. what a student is saying to you, what the message behind that person as to why they should be admitted and often i had to make
those tough decisions. i often listens to what the person said to see the driving force behind it. >> a statement from the college board on the adversity score, quote, the environmental context dashboard shines a light on students who demonstrated remarkable resourcefulness to overcome challenges and achieve more with less and other academic accomplishments in the context of where they live and learn. thank you. i was talking to you how i covered students coming from poverty-stricken places and covered stories on them and they worked to be the first in their family to get into college and that reward was something you can't take away. rob: 37 after the hour. community uproar after a beloved school lunch ladies fired after giving a free lunch to a kid
